IMPORTANT – Student Emergency Need

Dear DGALA Alums and Friends,

Several years ago we created the Bourne Fund to help Dartmouth LGBT students facing sudden hardship caused by being financially disowned as a result of their sexual orientation or gender identity.  Many thanks to those who have given to keep this “safety net” in place!

Currently, we have been advised by Pam Misener (Assistant Dean and Advisor to LGBT students), there is a Dartmouth undergraduate student in need of our help, as her home has become unsafe, so much so that with the help of local authorities the student was able to leave and is now seeking refuge back in Hanover.  We will use Bourne funds on hand to help immediately, but housing and other basic costs for the summer are more than we have.

If you can give to help keep this student safe on campus this summer while financing is arranged for her last two terms in fall and winter, it would be greatly appreciated.  You may help by making a tax deductible contribution to the DGALA Bourne Fund (named in honor of Rosita Bourne ’03, the first student whom we helped in this manner) in either of the following ways:

(1) go to http://www.dartmouth.org/affiliated/dgala/support.html and click on the Bourne Fund link, which will enable you to make a credit card contribution; or
(2) mail a check payable to DGALA (with “Bourne Fund” written on the memo line) to Pete Williams, Treasurer, PO Box 1191, Stockbridge, MA 01262.

Please feel free to contact me at dartgala@gmail.com with any questions.

Thank you for your help,

Pete Williams ’76, Secretary/Treasurer, DGALA
